Le kaléidoscope propose une veille de sites croisant art, vidéo, féminisme, cinéma, genre.... Une veille qui collecte et partage.
Cette interface agit tel "un instrument tubulaire contenant un jeu de miroirs et des fragments de verre mobiles, diversement découpés et colorés, produisant des figures qui varient à chaque secousse reçue par l’appareil." (définition du kaléidoscope par notre chère Académie française) auquel on aurait judicieusement ajouté du gender.

"Figure stellaire", Bisi Silva est de celles qui ont infléchi le cours de l'art contemporain, en particulier en s'efforçant de dégager ses circulations africaines de la dépendance du Nord, sans ignorer celle-ci- et pour ce faire, en développant des infrastructures locales et régionales. Et cela, elle l'a fait pendant 25 ans, investie dans la recherche et la transmission des pratiques curatoriales. Pas de "l'art africain". Pour elle, en effet, "ce n’est pas un sujet. C’est totalement dépassé!"(répondant au Monde): Après des études de langues étrangères en France, la nigériane Bisi Silva est formée par le Royal College of Art de Londres, qui donne l'impulsion de ses premières expositions, consacrées au Black Arts Movement et aux mouvements africains au (...)

Quant à ses œuvres, c'était peut-être encore plus difficile, et notamment pour un journal en noir et blanc! Mais voilà des questions simplistes que j'avais posées à Robert Ryman à l'occasion de son exposition- organisée par Urs Rausmuller à l'Espace Studio 7L de Claude Berri au 7, rue de Lille, qui sont parues dans Libération du 4 novembre 1999, il y a presque vingt ans.

We would like to express sincere apologies for an article posted on the blog yesterday (February 8) sharing reflections from one of our writers following a recent visit to Lesotho. We have noted that the views expressed by the writer are not the full reflection of Lesotho. Lebo further extends personal apologies to Lineo Segoete for quoting her out of context including writing Maggots instead of Manganese. Our apologies further extend to all participants of the workshop.  We welcome the feedback and plan to continue engaging with the different individuals and groups who have taken us to task to revisit the text written. The decision to take down the article stems from the respect we have for the views and feedback received. Thank you Inkanyiso

Text by: Lebogang Mashifane We arrived in Maseru, Lesotho on Sunday January 27 around 6pm and we settled in our rooms. Shortly after we met up with Zach Rosen and Lineo Segoete for dinner. They asked where’s Christie Van Zyl and spoke of the lovely time they had in 2015 when she was there as a featured poet at the Literary Festival, while and also mentoring young poets in poetry workshops. Lineo also warned us about the water in Lesotho that the water sometimes has maggots and that their water consumption is already decreasing their long life span. They have about 50 years to live. This becomes weird because Lesotho supplies South Afrika with water and the water is all right. Day 1 We met with the lovely team of young women, some are queer identifying and share this during (...)

Text by: Thobeka Bhengu Photos by: Thobeka Bhengu and Lerato Dumse The first day of February 2019 was the last day with these young and brilliant Basotho women. The day started with breakfast as usual and later included a brief session with Muholi whilst the facilitator backed up footage from the previous day. Muholi encouraged the participants to work on their biographies and make certain that they do not “short-change themselves” encouraging participants to mention all their accomplishments. Muholi also announced that the group needs to put together a proposal for the Women Mobile Museum, which forms part of the Mobile School of Photography. Participants will shoot Maseru landscapes, host exhibitions in public spaces and launch an official blog for the Maseru group where they will (...)

It started eagerly with an early morning exercise at the Ha Ratjomose Mountain. The lovely walk to the mountain is typically about 15 minutes long. By the time we arrived on top of the mountain nearly everyone was breathing heavily as a result of the walk and climbing up a steep. The session facilitated by myself was intended to assist with gently releasing any tension in our bodies using thorough stretches and vocal exercises. The session took about 45 minutes and by the time we went carefully down the mountain going back to Mohokare Guesthouse for a hearty breakfast, our bodies were feeling a little lighter and (...)

By Matseliso Motsoane The schedule was reworked on the third day of Lesotho Photo XP and started with breakfast at Mohokare Guest House in Maseru. We shared the meal over some of the written pieces that the participants had done the previous day or work that they had from before the training. It was an honest exchange about the power of our voices, being creatives and being celebrated. While some participants shared poems they had written the day before, others including Ts’episo Mahooa, shared previously written stories. Ts’episo shared a story that tugged at everyone’s heartstrings, a story which she was courageous enough to share with many other people through a publication called WordPower. We continued to go around the table sharing thoughts, ideas and art. After the check-in, (...)

By Thobeka Bhengu On the second day of the experience, Sir Zanele Muholi and Thobeka Bhengu drove from Johannesburg, South Africa to Lesotho in the morning to join the team that had already arrived in Maseru. Beautiful landscape and scenery guide the path from South Africa to Lesotho. Image by: Lerato Dumse The drive was nearly four hours long. We drove past green open fields, charred mountains, hectares of unoccupied land and cattle roaming around, nibbling on grass. We took in and inhaled the breath-taking landscapes of Lesotho, and finally, we arrived at the border where Tambu Muzenda picked us up after crossing the border for a short drive into Maseru. On arrival, we were told participants had gone on the field to shoot images relating to concepts they had developed under (...)

By: Lindiwe Dhlamini Photos by: Thembela Dick A long-awaited interview session with the revolutionary, care-free, articulate, and extremely liberated Pastor Tebogo Moema, who preaches the gospel of love, unity and family support which he terms the “vortex of power”. The set-up had already taken place with the help of Thembela Dick setting up the camera for visual recording and Nompumelelo Mjikeliso an intern who helped proof read the questions and print them prior to the Pastors arrival. All we needed was the ever loving, unapologetic and fun Pastor Moema to come and share with us his journey as an openly Gay Pastor in a world that shames and discriminates homosexuals. The issue of sexuality and religion is known to be controversial and has brought many heated debates in the past (...)

By: Lindiwe Dhlamini Photos by: Thembela Dick  The last Thursday evening of the first month of 2019 was spent at the historical Constitutional Hill where renowned Judge Edwin Cameron was about to have a conversation with Welcome Lishivha about his life as an LGBTIQ+ and HIV/AIDS activist. Judge Cameron is known for his bravery as the first openly Gay judge living with HIV. A truth many prominent people will not divulge in public yet, Judge Cameroon was ready to live and tell his truth as early as 1992 when he came out as a Gay man. At the beginning of the event Kgosi Motsoane one of the founders of Bare Stories gave an inspiring life story about growing up and noticing people that judged him. People telling him he was different before he could understand who he was and what his (...)

Je suis très fier d’une définition de la position d’autorité qui m’a été suggérée par un de mes professeurs de droit, Pierre Gothot.

This was confirmed by most of the people I spoke to while doing vox pops outside of the packed tent where the president was due to address the crowd on January 9.

By Thobeka Bhengu There is something moving about seeing young black women empowered. Their confidence shoots through the roof. The way they present and articulate themselves takes a complete shift for the better. Education should be a holistic approach, which entails developing young people intellectually, socially, mentally creatively and spiritually. When the education environment is safe, flexible, fun and requires a young person to push themselves beyond what they have ever imagined, it makes it easier for young people to learn. The Photo XP project was founded by Zanele Muholi in 2004 and has trained and shared photography skills with black youth and women. The Mobile School of Photography project is a fairly new project under the Photo XP banner. The project was discussed (...)
